July 24-28, 2017 CHINA’S ROLE IN WWII PHOTO EXHIBIT

The photos in the exhibit highlight the Sino-Japanese War as well as key events in the greater WWII. The U.S. was an important wartime ally of China. Americans even bravely volunteered to fight with the Chinese before the U.S. officially entered the war. This relationship is on full display in the exhibit. When Americans discuss WWII, very little attention is given to the role China played in the war or the deep alliance between China and the U.S. We hope this exhibit will give some much deserved attention to an often overlooked aspect of the war.
